So the “Chick Writes Stuff” title…too cutesy? I wasn’t sure. I’ve been a writer and columnist by trade for about seven years now, but this is my first foray into my own website/blog (I also just got on the Tweeter and the MyFace!). And after scouring mountains of ridiculous website pages for tips on what to name your blog (Make it unique! Make it you! Make it something everyone in the world can totally relate to so you can totally score a book deal and movie rights!) I grew frustrated and just typed in the first thing I could think of.
Plus, it’s a pretty accurate name. I am indeed a chick who writes stuff.
And so this blog is dedicated to documenting all my new adventures (and shamelessly promoting my newspaper humor column, the archives of which you can check out HERE!… and yes, yes I do feel dirty now) and my attempts, at the age of 29, to figure out how to survive adulthood in general (I mean, beyond my current solution of perpetual happy hour).
Glad you’re doing this – you’re columns always make me smile and/or laugh…keep writing.
Yea! I can’t wait to hear about all of your “Big City” adventures! You may have grown up in and lived in small towns, but you always lived life big!
Welcome to the blogosphere, love!
I once had a similar, 4-word blog title: “Bedraggled Ruffian, Can’t Sing”. But my first & last name ended up winning out in the long-haul. Good luck with this site!
I love your website and anything you write! I wish we could experience Boston with you. And Aprill, (I sure you won’t) but please never change. I love who you are as a person and maybe small town living had a lot to do with it. I’m sure the big city will only bring out your best and you’ll always be the Aprill we all love from a small city. =)
Why is it that just when I think you couldn’t possibly be ANY cooler, you go and make a website like this … and TOTALLY REDEEM YOURSELF! I actually don’t think the quote is appropriate for what I’m trying to say, but who couldn’t use some wise words from Harry and Lloyd when they are kicking off their own website. I mean come on…
You’ve always had a gift and I’m so excited that more people will be able to read the clever, laugh out loud stories that those who know you have enjoyed for years. Keep writing and we’ll keep reading.
I do have one question though. Why didn’t you call it “I got worms?” Just wondering.
Aprill! I love that you’ve created a new blog! I love reading what you write, please do not ever stop. Keep on writing! 😛
Aw, shucks, guys *blushes* Thanks for the words of encouragement!
